DeMarini Pro Maple 243 Composite Wood Baseball Bat (BBCOR)

DeMarini's Pro Maple Composite Wood baseball bat was designed with heavy hitters in mind. The baseball bat is built with more mass in the barrel, perfect for driving the ball further. The Pro Maple Composite combines a wood barrel (maple) with a composite handle, which makes the handle more durable without sacrificing the sound and performance of a premium wood baseball bat.

OK BP Bat

I needed a composite for the cages and to see how it worked in games too. Great bat for the cages, but it flexes too much on contact and didn't get that nice pop...Read complete review

      I recommen this bat but in my experience a aluminum bbcor is a little better then a wood bbcor bat but this is the best bbcor wood composite. and Yes YOU CAN USE THIS BAT IN HIGH SCHOOL. but it has to have bbcor on it and if you order it in baseball express it will be bbcor.

          Comments about DeMarini Pro Maple 243 Composite Wood Baseball Bat (BBCOR):

          This is a durable, end loaded bat with BBCOR pop. Larger sweet spot for a wood bat due to longer barrel of the 243 model but still much smaller than any aluminum bat. Excellent practice bat for a stronger high school or college player. You will need to tape up the handle or use pine tar.

                This bat is awesome. It's much more durable than any other bat I've used. I use it for games and to hit pop flies to our outfielders. I've hit balls off the hands and it hasn't even flinched. Other bats would've broken but not this one.
